Juanma Lopez: I Learned A lot From The Salido Loss

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former WBO featherweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez is learning from the first loss of his career. He feels the loss will make him a much better fighter. Last weekend in Nayamon, Puerto Rico, Lopez was stopped in eight rounds by Orlando Salido of Mexico. The biggest problem for Juanma in the fight was a lack of speed. He told his corner that his hands felt slow and he couldn't get his legs going, but he's not sure why that happened.

"I definitely learned a lot. You have to make some, adustments there are no other options.  I feel that I failed the public. But, everyone has supported me, cried with me and that makes me continue to grin. The best ever, Muhammad Ali, finished his career with five defeats and he was always a hero. I knew that he (Orlando Salido) was a dangerous fighter. I didn't attention to his record, whether it was good or bad," Juanma said to Rafael Rivera.

"From the first round when I sat in the corner I told them I was felt slow and my speed was not there. Something happened. Actually, when he put him down, I wasn't really that hurt - I just felt very dizzy, but I've felt punches like this. I sat and watched the fight and it wasn't good. The speed was not there and neither was the movement in my legs. I was rather slow."
